Bruce Greenfield, PT, PhD, OCS, and co-authors, Allon Goldberg, PT, Phd, Steven L. Wolf, PhD, PT, FAPTA, and Catherine L. Curtis, PT, EdD, were selected by the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Physical Therapy Education to be the recipients of the 2008 Stanford Award for their article “Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues of Genomics: Implications for Physical Therapist Education” (JPTE, Volume 22, Number 1, Spring 2008).
The Stanford Award was established through the generosity of Dr. Katherine Shepard and others who worked at Stanford University in Physical Therapy Education for many decades. The award is given to the author(s) whose manuscript published in any regular issue of the preceding year has been identified by the Journal Editorial Advisory Board as the article containing the most influential ideas for physical therapy education published in that year.
Both Dr. Greenfield and Dr. Wolf are faculty members in Emory’s Division of Physical Therapy. They, along with their co-authors, were honored with the award and publicly recognized for their importance and influence in physical therapy education on Wednesday, February 11, 2009, at the Combined Sections Meeting.
